The Ballad of Cable Hogue is one of my favorite movies!  I really like the songs in it.  @Abandoned , that movie is set mainly in the Arizona desert. Cable Hogue and his two partners are out in the desert, looking for water.  I think they were prospectors.  I don't know why they are out in the desert, with almost no water with them, unless they didn't realize how vast it was.  The partners knock out Cable, steal his water bottle/water skin, and leave him to die.  But, Cable finds some water and then builds a little stagecoach stop.  He serves food to the passengers, using animals from the desert, such as snakes, in a stew, I think.  The people liked it until he told them what it was.

How interesting, thanks @galensgranny  :) That sounds like a movie I would like but I don't think I would like snake in my stew.  Snake stew is on the bottom of my menu list right along with frog legs.  :)

There are recipes online for how to prepare and cook snakes, so that is something some people do.  I won't be one of those people.
In the movie The Ballad of Cable Houge, at first Cable's new friend told the passengers that the meal they were eating was Coq au Vin, which they accepted, not knowing what that was either, but it sounded like something fancy and special.  But then Cable told them what the meat was.

Reminds me of when my kids were very young. Times were hard and rabbit was a cheap meat to get a hold of but I knew they wouldnt like the idea of eating a fluffy bunny so I told them they were eating chicken..didnt tell them the truth until they were all grown up.
I am not a Gamer because I don't have a life but because I choose to have many.
